For todays, my eye focused in on the cute embellishment in the lower left corner, so that's what I'm casing!

Stampin' Up! Snow is Glistening Sponge Dauber Trick card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC305 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #snowisglistening #snowflakeshowcase

Talk about a card that is simple, but wow...this one fits the bill.  With it's easy Sponge Dauber Trick (see below tips) - you'll get stunning results in no time at all

My Stamping Club Members couldn't get enough of it.  I heard surprised oohs, aahs and wows throughout the night.  Made me smile.  It's always fun to learn a new stamping technique.  But even more fun when it's so easy that you can go home and do it yourself!

How'd She DO That? Sponge Dauber Tree card:

  • Stamps: Snow is Glistening (avail until 11/30)
  • Paper:
    • Real Red (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base, scrap for 1-3/8" scallop circle punch) 
    • Whisper White (4" x 5-1/4", scrap for 1-1/4" circle punch)
  • Ink: Real Red, Tuxedo Black Memento
  • Other:  1-1/4" Circle Punch, 1-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch, Real Red 3/8" Mixed Satin ribbon, Snowflake Trinkets (avail until 11/30), Sponge Dauber, Mini Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Tip:  see below

Tips for creating multi-colored tree with a Sponge Dauber:

  1. Ink of tree image with Real Red ink
  2. Before stamping, add black ink with Sponge Dauber to the larger snowflakes
  3. Breath on stamp to remoisten
  4. Stamp on 4" x 5-1/4" Whisper White Panel
  5. Then - ooh and aah!

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #302: Fall Winter Woods

It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge.  This week we're having a "Home Sweet Home" challenge.  

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC302 Home Sweet Home #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy
Feels like fall! 

At least that's what I saw when working on this week's DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge.   

Stampin' Up! Winter Woods Bundle card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC302 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #masculinecards #birthdaycards #winterwoods

My husband had a birthday last week and this was the card I made for him.  It wasn't exactly what I had in my head when I first started, but I think it turned out nicely.  And more importantly, he really liked it. That's why we make cards, right?

How'd She DO That? tips for Fall Winter Woods card:

  1. Stamps: Winter Woods, Beautiful Day
  2. Paper:
    • Whisper White Thick (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base) 
    • Whisper White (4" x 5-1/4")
    • Early Espresso (2-3/8" x 4-1/4" for curved edgelit)
  3. Ink: Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, Pumpkin Pie
  4. Other:  Big Shot, Into the Woods, Crumb Cake 3/8" Classic Weave Ribbon, Leaves Trinkets, Stamping Sponges, Glue Dots &SNAIL
  5. Tips:  see below for Sponging Technique Tips

Stampin' Up! Winter Woods Bundle card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC302 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #masculinecards #birthdaycards #winterwoods

Dawn's Sponging Technique Tips:

  • To get the ombre look, use Stamping Sponges
  • Sponge on ink using a circular motion
  • Start with the lightest color, working from the bottom to the top with the darkest color. 
  • I used Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody and just a touch of Pumpkin Pie.
  • I actually make a panel with Crajun Craze at the top, but it was too dark for my liking.

Even though the name of this stamp set/bundle is called Winter Woods, it makes fabulous fall card too - don't you think?!   Add it to your shopping bag today - see shopping links below.

Enjoy~Dawn O

Rooted in Nature: Stunning Embossed Resist Leaves! (& last day of FLASH1018 sale)

You're in for a treat today.  I have a stunning Rooted in Nature Embossed Resist technique card for you today.  If you need a special card for a special friend,  this is the card to make.  See below for detailed instructions.

Stampin' Up! Rooted in Nature emboss resist card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #rubberstamping #papercrafting #thankyoucard #rootedinnature 

Emboss Resist Technique is an oldie but goodie stamping technique. Here's how...

  1. Wipe Embossing Buddy all over a panel of Whisper White cardstock.
  2. Stamp images onto cardstock with Versamark ink.
  3. Cover with your choice of Stampin' Emboss Powder, remove excess powder.
  4. Use Heat Tool to melt powder, let cool.
  5. Sponge ink over the entire panel.  (either Stampin' Sponge or Sponge Dauber will work)
  6. Use a paper towel to remove any ink from the embossed images.
  7. The areas where there is embossing - it will resist the ink and the images will "pop"!

The "skeleton leaves" from the Rooted in Nature stamp set are a perfect choice for the Emboss Resist Technique.  

How'd She DO That? tips for Embossed Resist Rooted In Nature card:

  • Stamps: Rooted in Nature
  • Paper:
    • Blackberry Bliss (4-1/4" x 11" card base, & scrap for oval)
    • Copper Foil Sheets (4" x 5-1/4" & scrap for oval)
    • Whisper White (3-3/4" x 5")
  • Ink: Versamark, Blackberry Bliss
  • Other: Big Shot, Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies (smallest oval), Layering Ovals Framelits Dies (smallest scallop) , Heat Tool, Embossing Buddy, Copper Stampin' Emboss Powder, 1/4" Copper Trim, Sponge Dauber, Mini Stampin' Dimensionals

Stampin' Up! Rooted in Nature emboss resist card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #rubberstamping #papercrafting #thankyoucard #rootedinnature

My camera had a hard time capturing the complete beauty of this card - due to the shine of the Copper Embossing and Foil sheets.  Trust me - in real life, this card will make your recipient gasp as they take it out of the envelope!  What a way to say "Thank You".

If you haven't purchased the Rooted in Nature stamp set (or bundle with framelits dies - saves 10%)...what are you waiting for?   At the very least, you'll want to add it to your wish list, and maybe someone can get it for you for your birthday or upcoming holidays.

If you're ready to get it now...add it to your shopping bag today!  (see shopping links below) 

Enjoy~Dawn O

Nature's-Poem

This card features some fun texture, as well as the masking technique, which I describe below.

How'd She DO That? tips for Rooted in Nature card:

  • Stamps:  Rooted In Nature (146479w or 146482c)
  • Paper:  
    • Whisper White Thick (5-1/2” x 8-1/2" card base)
    • Whisper White (4" x 5-1/4", 1-1/4" x 3-1/4" greeting, scrap for leaf)
    • Nature's Poem Designer Series Paper (4” x 1")
  • Ink:  Crumb Cake, Mint Macaron, Soft Suede 
  • Other:  Big Shot, Nature's Roots Framelits Dies, Nature's Twine, Copper Metallic Thread, Leaves Trinkets, SNAIL, Glue Dots, Stampin' Dimensionals, sticky note
  • Masking Technique:  
    1. On white 5" x 5-1/4" panel, stamp “wood” image with Crumb Cake ink. 
    2. Stamp again on a sticky note (near top where the “sticky” area would be).  Create a mask by cutting image from sticky note. 
    3. Place "mask" over the first stamped image (pulling it down just a smidgen). 
    4. Stamp leaf images over mask and partially on white panel.  Stamp again without reinking.
    5. Remove sticky note to reveal leaves peeking out under the wood image.

Nature's-Poem-CU

Tips to complete card:

  • Lay down some SNAIL adhesive over wood image (center, right edge). Wrap metallic thread around three fingers (3-4 times), pull off and press onto the adhesive. 
  • Adhere DSP strip over thread.  Lay down some SNAIL on top half of DSP.  Pull 3 threads from 10-11” of twine, wrap around fingers, pull off and press onto the adhesive.   
  • Adhere leaf die cut with glue dots.  Adhere greeting with Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Adhere completed panel to folded Whisper White card base.  Then use a Glue Dot to adhere copper leaf trinket.

The Rooted in Nature Bundle creates more than meets the eye.   Great for techniques, like masking and more.  Fabulous for any card maker!  Add it to your shopping bag today (see shopping links below)!  

And....BONUS!!  I have a few more Nature's Poem Suite projects to share with you.  Be sure to stop by this week for more inspiration!

Enjoy~Dawn O

Wrapping up my Broadway Bound Suite Week Day 5 from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #birthdaycards #broadwaybound #stampingtechnique #omittingtechnique

I'm lovin' the way the marquee sign turned out!  See my tips below:

  • Using the Omitting Technique!
    • The line under the "make a" image and the "I" in "WISH" image was omitted by covering them up with tape (narrow Washi Tape works great).
    • Then ink up stamp
    • Before stamping, remove tape (don't forget this step!)
  • To mat the marquee shape so color will show through the "holes:
    • trace die shape onto scrap of black, then hand cut.
    • Use glue dots to adhere to marquee sign.

Well, that's it for Broadway Bound Suite Week!  I hope you enjoyed the projects and learned a couple of tips/tricks along the way.  Which project was your favorite this week?

VIDEO: Hold on to Hope with Brusho Crystal Colours

Today's card features a couple of new products from the 2018 Occasions Catalog...Hold on to Hope Bundle and Brusho Crystal Colours.

Brusho Crystal Colour & Hold on to Hope Bundle by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #rubberstamping #papercrafting  #holdontohopebundle #crossesofhopeframelits #eastercard #eastercard #encouragementcards #brushocrystalcolour #howdshedothat

I have to admit...I'm watercolor challenged.   But with these watercolor ink crystals, all you have to do is sprinkle them directly on water-washed paper and watch the colors burst!  I can DO that and you can too!  Be sure to watch the How'd She DO That? video below to see how.

How'd She DO That tips for Hold on to Hope card:

  1. Stamps: Hold on to Hope
  2. Paper:
    • Dapper Denim (11" x 4-1/4" card base, scrap for cross)
    • Watercolor Paper (4" x 5-1/4")
